The Junior Bookshelf
[A Pistol in Greenyards] is a most vivid account of the tragedy of the Highland Clearances….
This is a most gripping story, the dignity and bravery of the Highlanders in their doomed fight to save their homes makes one of the best historical tales I have read for some time—and it is a reminder that our national heritage has not always been a subject for pride.
